I don’t know what happened, but after I copied over an .anki file from my laptop to my smartphone, the app all of a sudden got the capability to search already created decks.  Very strange.  Also, the YouTube channel to check out is unavailable, but here is the first of seven videos that give a good orientation to Anki on your phone.

Again, you do NOT need to sign up for an account at

Have fun!
